Preview the Slide Show
Before creating a final movie of
the slide show, check the dura-
tion of the slides and any tran-
sitions you may add by playing
the production in the Preview
Window.
With the slides exported to a
folder, you are ready to create a
slide show from the content in
VideoWave. While you could add
the slides to a Collection, it’s just
as easy at this point to access
them all at once from their file
folder.
